The Attorney General expressed confidence that a conviction would be obtained for Khalid Sheikh Mohammed while speaking to a Senate Committee Wednesday.
Washington, D.C. (WiredPRNews.com) – Attorney General Eric Holder discussed his decision last week to send five suspects in the September 11, 2001 attacks to New York to face trial with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Holder expressed confidence that a conviction would be obtained in the case of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, and others accused of playing a role in the terrorists attacks.
Holder is quoted by the AP as stating to the committee, “I have every confidence that the nation and the world will see him for the coward that he is,” Holder told the committee. “I’m not scared of what Khalid Sheik Mohammed has to say at trial — and no one else needs to be either.”
The Attorney General is further quoted as stating amid opposition to his decision, “Our institutions are strong, our infrastructure is sturdy, our resolve is firm, and our people are ready.”
